Backstage Theatre

Backstage Theatre opened its doors in April 1995. A purpose built state of the art theatre located in the Slashers GAA Complex. Backstage was from the outset a community driven project with its main advocates being Slashers GAA Club and Backstage Theatre Group.

Since 1995 our commitment to our central role as a regional Theatre has been based on the vision of the initiators of the theatre project. They planned “A Theatre for Longford” which is accessible, participatory and enhances the cultural infrastructures of the region.

It is our mission to promote the development of the arts regionally by presenting a high quality, diverse and innovative program of arts activities. Valued by and engaging the community we serve and which provides a platform and resource for artists and companies to present their work.

Over the years a growing audience at Backstage has been treated to a dynamic program of exciting and inspiring theatre. Whether you fancy top quality drama, breathtaking dance, belly chortling comedy or live music we have something to suit all tastes.
